Level 2 and 3 Beauty Therapy

Looking for a combination of treatments? Want to cover all of the basics before specialising? Good idea!

We specialise in tailoring packages for our learners, however, in some cases, you might want a UK regulated qualification to show your standard of work – and in these cases, many employers, insurers and licencing bodies will favour NVQ qualifications.

Our NVQ packages are weekly contact sessions with homestudy in between. Every unit includes a written assignment, and many have online exams to complete, however, your level of expertise is proven and regulated via this evidence built in an online portfolio, along with practical assessments. This ensures that you are fully able to use your qualification for its inteded purpose.

You will be working on live models throughout the training sessions, and all progress is tracked and monitored by a quality assurance team.
